Natalie Maria Cole (February 6, 1950 – December 31, 2015)

Fifteen years and five #1 hits after breaking into the music industry by
working in a style completely different from her famous father’s, Natalie
Cole stopped distancing herself from Nat King Cole’s musical legacy
and instead embraced it, recording an entire album of standards from
her father’s old repertoire. Though it exposed her to charges of
exploiting his memory, it also gave Cole the biggest hit album of her
professional career: Unforgettable: With Love, which climbed to the
top of the Billboard 200 album chart on July 27, 1991.

Cole had "ongoing health issues". According to Cole’s publicist, Maureen O’Connor, the singer’s death was the result of congestive heart failure. She
was 65.
